Dear Campus Friends,
It is with mixed emotions, as these announcements always are, that we inform the community that the Dean of the Willard College College of Music, Dr. Grad Muffins is leaving us to seek his fortunes in other endeavors. Starting in January, he will start an intensive four month training program in professional clowning in Bakersfield, CA. Provided he passes the course with a satisfactory grade, he looks forward to a promising career in traveling circus work. Dr. Muffins shared with us that he as “a passion for travel, entertainment, and the arts, and circus work seemed to check all the boxes”
We hope the circus finds its way back to Willard, which we know will be your home away from home away from home.
Fondly, Provost Vandergrind
